Rochdale Canal's £23.8M restoration


Rochdale Canal's £23.8M restoration moves into top gear next week when the £3.5M Manchester Road bridge works gets under way. The original bridge was demolished in 1952. Its replacement will be in keeping with the traditional heritage and design of the canal. British Waterways project manager Keith Paylor said: 'The restoration of this important trans-Pennine waterway is a very challenging and exciting project which will be the catalyst for regeneration along its entire route.'
